A novel spherical cellulose adsorbent with amide and sulphinate groups was used for a first reduction of trichloroacetic acid(TCAA) and a subsequent adsorption of generated species, haloacetic acids. The removal mechanism involved TCAA reduction by sulphinate groups and the adsorption of the haloacetic acids through electrostatic interaction with amide group. Investigation of product formation and subsequent disappearance reveals that the reduction reactions proceed viasequential hydrogenolysis, and transform to acetate ultimately. Adsorption of haloacetic acids was ascertained by low chloride mass balances(89.3%) and carbon mass balances(75.1%) in solution. The pseudo-first-order rate constant for TCAA degradation was (0.93±0.12) h-1. Batch experiments were conducted to investigate the effect of pH value on the reduction and adsorption process. The results show that the reduction of TCAA by sulphinate groups requires higher pH values while the electrostatic attraction of haloacetic acids by amino group is favorable in more acidic media.
